Foundation Course

Asia Financial Markets Foundation Certificate (AFMFC)

The Asia Financial Markets Foundation Certificate (AFMFC) course aims to provide the essential foundational knowledge required to become a successful professional in the Asian financial markets.

With input from financial services L&D leaders across APAC, ASIFMA has designed an introductory-level course providing an overview of all facets of the major Asian financial markets.

It is ideal training for early career staff of Asian financial market firms or for professionals looking to broaden their knowledge or transition into Asia financial markets.

This flexible course is low on cognitive load and allows participants to learn at their own pace (no off-desk time) across 13 weeks.

The Certificate is awarded upon passing a Final Exam.
